In this, the final part of my series on the story of the family of Abraham, I discuss what relevance it might have for us today.
I discuss Genesis 49 and Israel’s prophetic statements concerning his twelve tribes.
James Bejon and I discuss Genesis 46 and the descent of Jacob into Egypt.
Today, I discuss the sale of Joseph into Egypt.
Today I discuss a couple of the strangest episodes in the story of Genesis: Rachel’s request for some of Leah’s mandrakes and Jacob’s taking of Laban’s flocks using—among other things—poplar rods.
Jacob encounters Rachel at the well and marries Rachel and Leah.
